Recipe cards going obsolete

I was reading an article on the WSJ and it was talking about recipe cards now being obsolete. People may keep some as momentos.

Does anyone else still use the old handwritten recipe cards?

I still use them for family recipes. I have a nice recipe card binder and have recipes from my DGM, DM, DMIL, and my own family recipes and favs in there. I plan to pass it on to one of my nieces. I would not take the time to write out a card for something from a magazine unless it was a short recipe and a definite keeper which I consider quite special.

I also have 3 regular binders with handouts from cooking classes I have taken over the years and clippings from cooking magazines.

I still have some. I started marriage with a 3 ring Betty Crocker Cookbook. I have added many pages of recipes from friends over the years a few recipe cards are taped in.

I have a little basket of them but I really only use the old family recipe ones. I have my grandmothers recipe book that Iím hoping to scan and preserve because the ink is starting to fade.

Still love my cards!
I take a bunch and flip through them to help decide which cookies to make.

Take cards to store for ingredients.

I know I can use my phone for this but prefer the cards.��

If I find the time in my busy retirement, I’d like to write out the recipes I saved on my iPad.

My son at age four, made a great card holder from a block of wood and a clothespin. I still use it.

I would much rather splash food while cooking on my recipe card rather than my computer. I am have cooked with my laptop in my kitchen but it makes me nervous.

Maybe Iím too slow when cooking, but when I follow a recipe on my iPad, it fades out while Iím busy and I hate clicking on it with my foody hands. Plus, 1 small card is easier for me to move around the kitchen as I work in different spots. Whine, whine.

Recipe cards may be ďgoing obsolete,Ē and so am I.

I love my recipe books and cards. I have some of my mother's books with her notes handwritten on the side. I love to read them. I write notes on mine, too. Many times with how they turned out, changes I made, which grandchild made them with me and date.

New recipes are printed out. Every once in a while I'll follow one on my laptop in the kitchen. Many times it's the old tried and true recipes on cards. Like Jeffie, I smile when I look at the recipes in my mother's handwriting.

Yes. I still love recipe cards with family recipes. However, I do investigate new recipes on the internet.

Sometimes the only way to differentiate my recipes is by the stains on them from years and years of use, along with the giver's penmanship!

I read that same article. I'm like amiga - it's a pain when my device goes to sleep at JUST the worst time.

Just seeing some of those recipes in original penmanship brings back floods of memories of dear, dear people.

I also read an article about taking the (ahem!) "vintage" recipe cards, printing them as is, with all the stains and scribbled notes and original handwriting, and having them bound for other family members.

I think THAT would make a very cool present.

My namesake was THE BEST cookie baker of all time! When she passed away at the age of 92, those attending the services were given a photocopy - in her handwriting - of her two most famous cookie recipes. I have "originals" that she gave me years ago. I treasure them.

My mom just gave me her old plastic recipe box. I can recognize peopleís handwriting before even looking for the name. I do use Pinterest a lot for recipes.
